Apprenticeship

We have a number of ways that you can gain valuable experience after your training at the Reiki Center of Greater Washington. All of these begin after you have completed a second-level course (Usui Reiki II, Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki II or Integrated Energy Therapy (R) Intermediate).

Assisting

You begin as a Student Assistant, helping in classes of the type that you have taken and are planning to eventually teach. The assisting usually involves setting and cleaning up before and after classes, reviewing the classes in the lecture and hands-on periods, helping the instructor during attunements, and helping to create a supportive environment for the students by bringing them water or tissues, etc. We encourage prospective Master students to assist at a minimum of two classes before beginning their Master studies.

Apprenticing as an Associate Practitioner

On an annual basis, (or as Associates complete their respective Internships), RCGW invites applicants to its Associate Practitioner Program, if they want to become professional practitioners. It provides the opportunity for Interns to provide paid healings at a reduced rate at RCGW for between 8 and 20 hours per week.
Over the course of up to 24 months, the Associate participates in a minimum of 100 documented hands-on sessions at the center or a program hosted by the center. These sessions vary in length between 30 and 120 minutes. The Intern documents the session and discusses it with the coaching practitioner with whom he or she is working. At the satisfactory conclusion of the program, the Associate discusses his or her experiences with the Center Director and becomes eligible to be a practitioner at the center, subject to RCGW policies and available space. Associate Practitioners are required to receive a minimum of one paid session with an RCGW practitioner each month.

Associate Practitioner applicants are encouraged to have completed at least three of the following before applying:

  • Usui Reiki I training
  • Usui Reiki II training
  • Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki I-II training
  • Integrated Energy Therapy (R) Basic, Intermediate and Advanced training
  • Master-level training in Usui Reiki, Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki or Karuna Reiki (R).

In addition to its Associate Practitioner program, RCGW also has an Internship Teacher program. This program provides the opportunity for Master-level student Interns to co-teach courses at the center with the RCGW Director. Each Intern is responsible for observing one course (of each type) and co-teaching three courses (of each type). At the satisfactory conclusion of the program, the Intern becomes eligible to teach courses that can be advertised through RCGW on their own or at the center, subject to RCGW policies and available space.

Internship Teacher applicants are encouraged to have completed at least two of the following before applying:

  • Usui Reiki Master training
  • Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki Master training
  • Karuna Reiki ® Master training
  • Lightarian Reiki ™ training
  • Integrated Energy Therapy (R) Master Instructor training.

Internship Teachers are required to schedule a minimum of one paid session with an RCGW practitioner each month and to pay food & lodging costs for the Master classes in which they Intern.
